Essie's Over the Edge


How have you guys been? I haven't been posting much recently but have many new gorgeous polishes to show you in the coming days.

Essie's retail line finally hit the racks in France and I'm so happy about that. So the other day I went a bit crazy and purchased some gorgeous polishes.
Although I live in Switzerland, the border is only a few minutes away. If you look at a map, you'll notice that Geneva is surrounded by France.

Let's begin with Over the Edge. I had been eyeballing this polish for months but just couldn't resolve ordering it on the net because I've had too many bad surprises and didn't want to spend my pennies on a polish I'd only wear once.
You might be familiar with Over the Edge, one of the many gunmetal gray polishes you can find on the market. It looks a bit like the color of a black pearl but doesn't have as many green undertones as Chanel's version (Black pearl). I have that one as well and will soon post a picture to compare.

Over the Edge's formula was great: 2 coats for complete opacity and no streaks, bubbles or bald patches. For my topcoat I used Revlon's Quick Dry Topcoat, one of the best TC I've tried, but you surely already know that as I've written about it before and many bloggers rave about it.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Essie delights!
